to the fbi and when i came to washington, i passed the information to the cia, and ever since, i never even talked to the guy again in my life, and kerry used this individual who had been put in jail for 46 years, into promoting the idea that the vice president knew about it and authorized this type of an operation, and i was involved in getting the money for the contras. actually, i was in el salvador flying at the time when my wife called me, and told me there was a story in the miami herald saying about that, which i told her, "forget about it -- is nothing true to it." but she was very concerned because people doesn't know us and they read this in the paper, and it is very detrimental to you, to your family and your integrity. so i did go and testify in private with senator kerry. it was a very strong hearing and they didn't want to do it in an open hearing at the time, and then it took me well over a year to testify openly, and when they did, which i hoped c-span could cover it, because he made sure that c-span did cover the hearing with meleone rodriguez. and i specifically requested
monitoring by the tunisian government. there are other suspects that the f.b.i. are both closely following and consulting with partner governments. i think based on my last conversation with director muller, which was just a few days ago. he went to libya. he went to tunisia. heblet that the investigation is proceeding. i know that the f.b.i. has been up on the hill doing classified briefings with certain committees. i don't know about this committee. but i certainly hope that the f.b.i. is able to investigate, identify and hold responsible those who wage this attack against us. and i think that based on their work, they feel that they are pursuing some very positive leads. >> ok. my understanding is the thank you knees the person held in tunisia was released by a judge and that person has been released. so basically we don't really know at this point who did it. >> well, congressman, i confirmed with director muller who was just in tunisia meeting with their high officials that this person is basically under law enforcement surveillance and forbidden to leave tunis. director muller told m
that there is an fbi investigation going on, because i personally called the fbi director and i was told that they are making progress and that some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> we work on an ongoing basis so we can get behind and find out what happened and move beyond that. can you make that commitment to me? >> senator, in all fairness we do know what happened is very clear. were you at the briefings with the tapes? >> there was a briefing in the tapes that we all saw those of us that went through which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel folks who described precisely what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold and we had a very complete and detailed description. >> we know what happened in benghazi because we have the reports. we don't know why we were misled. i'm just looking to make sure that your secretary -- swedes find out what the administration who knew and the american public. >> i don't want the people to be left with this impression when you say why we were misled, that implies an intent to
to the bottom of that? >> for the moment, i know that there is an fbi investigation going on because i personally called the fbi director and was debriefed by him and told that they're making progress, and that some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> i am going based on so we can get that behind us. but we can move beyond that. can you make that commitment to me? >> in all fairness, i do think we know what happened. it is very clear. were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> there was a briefing with tapes which we all saw which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with or intel folks, who described to us precisely what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold. we had a very complete and detailed description. >> we would happen now because we have the reports. what we do not know is why we were misled. i am just looking to make sure that you will work with me so that we find of what the administration knew. -- out what the administration knew. >> when you say why we were misled, that implies an intent to actually mi
dennboldened be one has paid a penalty for the attacks in benghazi? >> i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume some members of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume. about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that a
couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen and when it happened with respect to explaining the sequence of events. we did get to talk to the d.s. agents when they got back to this country. we did so. it was not before september 15. we had no access to the surveillance cameras for weeks, which helped to answer a number of questions. >> ifill: the challenges continued later in the day before the house foreign affairs committee. >> over and over and over again it was repeated that we had enraged the islamic terrorists, which by the way, what's that do? when you say that we enraged the islamic terrorists, that's means we're at fault, they're not at fault. >> i want to be clear that of course it was a terrorist attack. the very next day i called it an attack by heavily ar

've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we doubled back to her office and they told us, the fact of the matter is, the school does not have, to their

information has the fbi found on who did this, who these terrorists were specifically? when are we, when can we expect an update how this investigation is going? or is it dead in the water? is nothing actually happening? >> well, we're going to continue to work and i'm going to ask questions of secretary designee kerries because he will continue on with the work there. people still want justice. the president promised justice. when i asked the secretary yesterday was there justice, she said the president has promised and you can trust him to deliver. well, i'm not of the same mind set. i don't trust we'll find the full delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest gol
